. sad ly, this plan leaves conservatives wanting. wanting what exactly? the declaration that mitt romney is actually president? wanting what? a pony? there's a conservative guy who didn't get his pony. let's add the pony. how are you happy? still not happy? this is a game. republicans put forward an offer in which they get everything they want. democrats get nothing, even though democrats won the election. then the republicans have the people on their own side squawk and complain as if what's just happened is such a compromise. they must be giving so much to be upsetting their own side so much. it's total bull puck key. it's fine. everybody knows they are doing this. but if you have been following the back and forth in washington over this negotiation, do not let anyone convince you that this part of it is anything but horse hooey. um... uh... um... hm... umm... uh... oh ! the windows phone 8x by htc on verizon. it features easy to navigate live tiles that are simple to customize. just pin what matters most right to your homescreen. exclusively with data sense-- a feature that makes the

to succeed tim geithner as treasury secretary wasn't getting long enough, now you have mitt romney's name thrown into the ring. >> ben white joins us now to talk more about that. ben, you admit it's unlikely, but you think this would work. talk to us about it. >> it's a little unlikely. good to be with you. thank you. you look at the two things, the biggest knocks on the obama administration in the first term were they didn't have a businessman with any business experience in any senior role, and they had terrible relations with republicans on capitol hill. no businessman, no bipartisanship. romney gives you both of those. he's a guy that gets along with republicans. he could make a deal on entitlements, tax reform. and he gets you a lot of business experience. i first said it as a joke, then i thought it makes sense. a lot of people agreed with that. >> certainly the president wants to reach across the aisle, you know, once in a while and have republicans do that. usually a businessman goes to commerce secretary. >> often, but it's a back water agency. if you have someone with a really p
, this is a clear choice between romney and between obama, and it was very clear on obama wanted tax raise for the highest income americans. didn't the american people make that choice in voting for him, the electoral college and the popular vote? so isn't it incumbent on republicans to at least accept some upper income tax raise there? >> i think that the american public voted for the status quo. they voted for the gridlock that they had before the election. i think it's a little foolish of the american people to think they are going to get something different based on what they voted for. >> you think they want the status quo? >> -- largely for redistricting. well, they voted for it. whether they wanted it or not, to think these people are going to change long-held habits based on one election, i think is a little bit silly. we're going to have gridlock in washington and frankly, i think gridlock is a good thing, not a bad thing. it keeps congress from taking away more liberties. >> the other thing, anderson, is that when you look at the members of congress, overwhelmingly, they were re-
: my goodness. i understand mitt romney is coming to the white house for that lunch. i don't know, what is everybody expect to come from that? >> the president said the president wanted to talk to governor romney about ideas to make it more efficient. praising the management of the 2002 olympics, said he did a good job there. governor romney is one that raised the ideas happen deductions for tax for people to come up with as far as tax reform, come up with more tax revenue. melissa: thank you so much for your input, peter barnes. lori: what is on the menu? got to give a shout out. there is another battle brewing over the fiscal cliff, instead congress and the white house, this one happening on twitter. melissa: dennis kneale is covering the story with the latest. i love this one. >> the obama administration renowned for the use of social networks but this time maybe it outdid itself. the president urging americans to tweet their support for using the hash tag mo farah, as in my $2000, raised taxes on somebody else. now my2k has become a way to trash obama and cheering at the democrats.
mitt romney to the white house on thursday. with washington deadlocked, president obama reached out to his former rival, inviting mitt romney to lunch at the white house, aiming to put past differences to rest. >> i think that he's very interested in some of governor romney's ideas. >> reporter: romney arrived shortly after noon thursday. white house officials revealed few details about the lunch, saying only they ate white turkey chili, and the meeting lasted more than an hour, with governor romney congratulating the president on re-election. in the sole picture released by the white house, you can see the dining room where the men ate and boxing gloves. aides joked there were no punches thrown describing the encounter as friendly. >> i am happy to see this picture, it is good for the american people. >> reporter: a very different tone on capitol hill as fiscal cliff negotiations remain rocky. the president sent his top negotiator, treasury secretary tim geithner to meet with congressional leaders. afterward, house speaker john boehner said the white house had not proposed spending
. >>> time now is 6:38. president obama and mitt romney sit down for a little lunch. what may have been said behind closed doors. >> plus, what a police officer did with a new pair of boots that made him an internet sensation. >> and the manhattan just opened up about 10 minutes ago -- and the market just opened up about 10 minutes ago. let's check the numbers. so far not too good. coming up an update from kcbs moneywatch reporter jason brooks. ,, ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, >>> he's been hyping the storm all week and he's living up to it. >> i was taking a shower by flashlight this morning. a lot of power outages around the bay area. we have seen tremendous amounts of rain overnight but the focus now is shifting further to the south. you can see in toward the san jose area, we have some heavier amounts of rain moving in that direction. if you are heading out the door right now, it's going to be moderate to heavy rain in along 237 along 87, as well. and also an urban and small stream flood advisory in the santa cruz mountains. so the rain continues on through dublin along 680 towards san ramon. s
to president obama once again this year. not as much so as in 2008, but a big advantage over governor romney. 59 to 37%. why do you think that was? >> you know, we were able to make strides among the youth, decreasing the president's lead from 2008. this year we carried 37% of all 18 to 29-year-olds. this was a big accomplishment for the republican national college commit. we had our largest field staff out. 63 field reps in 25 battle ground states and together they produced about 7.2 million live voter contacts and recruited 52,000 new cr's. so we were tremendously proud of our field efforts. and i think that's largely what you see reflected in those numbers. if you really break down those numbers, though, governor romney made big leaps and strides among the white male vote of 18 to 29-year-olds, but we still suffered as a party with young women and young minority voters. so i think that overall, this says to college republicans that we'll have to engage more with the communities and really refine our message when talking to those folks. >> rick: meghan, how much of it do you think is socia
, just to be the fly on a wall at the white house. the president is going to host mitt romney for a private lunch. how important, how significant is that, even if it's symbolic, that you have these two rivals having lunch together at the white house? >> extremely important. it's the right thing to do. it's going to be a good photo-op for obama and romney together. remember in 1960, kennedy barely, barely beat nixon. yet they met and had a great feeling effect. in 2000, the whole dangling debacle that declared george bush over al gore but then they met and gore admitted he lost. it was very healing. it's an important step tomorrow to garnering a new spirit of bipartisanship if that's possible. >> we hope it's possible. we know that secretary clinton, you know, she once was a rival of obama. do you think that mitt romney, is there a place for him in the administration? >> no. mitt romney has a lot of money and he should go enjoy it i think at this point. it's not his time. he needs to do other things. there's no real role for him in the obama administration. it wouldn't work. af
wasn't necessarily the win of obama over romney but it assures that ben bernanke will be here for a while. all this talk about the fiscal cliff is peanuts compared to the importance of what is happening in monetary policy. >> that is correct and the fiscal stimulus not so important. ben bernankeemaintaining quantitative easing for prolonged period of time gives investors confidence as opposed to taking the punch bowl away with quantitative easing of the mitt romney as president so when the fed says they will keep interest rates relatively low we are absolutely low and some time in 2013 you have to believe that. liz: the journal says qe 4 is coming. he is coming up in a minute because he got a big scoop yesterday on q e 4. great to have you on the program. the dow 14,000, you are obviously the bull, what would get us there and in what period of time? >> nice to be on with you. i think when we look at the technicals here we are seeing a strong landscape of many individual stocks representing broad diverse leadership. this would not say if the expectations were for a fault of of
romney. he really should be sitting down having lunches with john boehner, friendly lunches. that's what peggy noonan writes because they got to get a deal and they're growing further and further apart. it looks like we're about to sail over the cliff. you know what? rush limbaugh said yesterday that that is exactly what the democrats want to happen. >> welfare state, santa claus is what secures votes for them. the welfare state is what guarantees a permanent underclass, which they need. so we if over the cliff. it's a win. everybody's taxes go up. you need that revenue to pay for your welfare state. in addition, what else happens? you get cuts in the military! you don't think a democrat likes that? if -- believe me democrats can't wait for military cuts, defense cuts. my whole life that's the only thing they want to cut! here it is just waiting for them. it's already done. all we have to do is go over the cliff! >> steve: yep. >> gretchen: there is a lot of relevancy to that because who won the presidential el
, i'm sorry, admiral. when governor romney said that, pointed that out to president obama in the debate, he was -- we had horses and bayonets, too. he seemed to make light of that. how important is it? can you give us a sense of the impact? >> i think the president's comment is showing his inexperience in military matters. in this particular case we are going down to 220 ships. to put that number in perspective, i had 2505 ships under my command in the pacific fleet's. 20 percent of those 220 ships will be the literal combat ships which basically have no offensive or defensive capability. we are going to be challenged where we show weakness. and let me give you an example. just today china announced effective january 1 they have authorized their paramilitary naval forces and their police to stop all vessels in the south china sea that they consider to be there illegally if they have not requested permission. this must be rejected in the most strongest terms. this hits at the core capability of international maritime law, freedom of transit, freedom of navigation rights. lo
. >> that was romney's plan. lower tax rates, cut some deductions and what are you doing. >> bowles simpson, a democrat. he did the deal with the newt gingrich and bill clinton. you c . stuart: stop smiling. >> every democrat sitting right% there has said the same thing. remember bill clinton. he raised tax rates and it sent off a boom. you don't agree with that? >> i do agree with it, but he also reformed welfare. he was also willing to rein in modestly entitlements and do things on a comprehensive basis, it worked and paid huge dividends. stuart: i've got 30 seconds. >> yes. stuart: are we going to get a fiscal cliff avoid dan deal? >> we may get some form of a deal. we are not going to get a real deal. i think the economy is going to be hurt and i think both sides, especially the president deserve blame. stuart: who will get the blame? >> the republicans clearly are going to get the blame and hurting themselves. stuart: but we may go into a much slower economy and hurts the president. >> bad news for the president and even worse news for the the american people. stuart: i agree with that. all right,
, congressional republicans as well as barack obama and if mitt romney had become president the same thing, and the last-- absolutely. stuart: we're going to unleash borrowing? >> i think what we need-- >> take off that ceiling and allow the the president to spend what he wants and therefore, borrow. >> let's talk about your friend reagan, i think 18 times he raised the debt ceiling, so, nobody held him hostage the full faith and credit. stuart: if we do that now, no limit, there's no debt ceiling at all, and president obama could just, just borrow it. no one from congress, but borrow it, what happens. >> would i love to see some responsibility on behalf of congressional leaders. stuart: you don't think we'd get a debt crisis. >> been threatening bond vigilantes and things in the past five years, i haven't seen it yet. stuart: unfortunately we're out of time, but i love that smile. >> thank you, i love being on with you, despite the fact, talking-- the highlight of my day knowing i was going to be with you. stuart: and i do not believe you. >> it's 100% true. it's true. stuart: julie, than
the only republican he is scheduled to meet with this week is former presidential candidate mitt romney. lunch at the white house. back on the hill, congressional democrats did not put any spending cuts on the table, but senate majority leader harry reid did embrace republicans who have turned against one of the party's most influential forces. >> one obstacle standing beyond congress and compromise, grover norquist. bullying lawmakers willing to put their oath of office and promised to serve constituents ahead of the pledge to lead this antitax sell it. his brand of ideological extremism has been bad for congress and work for -- worse for the country. distancing themselves this week. i appreciate that very much. lou: with the majority leader's things we turn now to the man at the center of mr. reed's spewing of vitriol, of variable stream. we are joined by grover norquist , president of americans for tax reform. i have to ask you. how does it feel to be a bully of lawmakers? i like this part especially, anti-tax sell at. the logical extremists. to find yourself is really being pointed
mitt romney for a private lunch. it's their first meeting since the election. and this his victory speech, obama promised to engage with romney and consider his ideas. >> a lot of people didn't think the lunch would ever happen. >> interesting if he's going to be talking about ideas, mitt romney's idea had been to reach some sort of a cap on it 00 mem deductions. >> he would have just extended the bush tax cuts and then the other stuff would have been -- but if romney had been elected, whether bad long term to extend them, that's one thing, but he would have extended -- this is a weird argument to be having to have everything hinging on on the 2% that are -- suddenly as i've said before, suddenly everybody loves the bush tax cuts. so weird. >> flips the tables on who likes what. >> it all goes back to the line in the band. obama first time around caved and his base never for gave him for extending the bush tax cuts when he said he wouldn't. >> maybe the republicans should be reconsidering the tough line that they drew back in july of 2011 because this is a situation where i think i
committee. lou: he just lost his state in a national election. >> romney lost the state. the unemployment rate in ohio has gone down was due to policies. >> sorry about these governors. they have made there stay solvent. but look. -- [talking over each other] >> if i may. my heart is filled with excitement. i am so excited as i hear you tell me how good things are at the state level. there are governors out there. there are state legislatures, 26 of them controlled by republicans. i am not suggesting that the republican party has disappeared i am suggesting that national leaders to deal with the white house in a campaign structure@ that is still campaigning relentlessly after winning a presidential election -- >> the speaker has not buckled. he said la land. lou: did he say lolland all by himself? >> this is serious. here is what we can do. here is what we want to do. take the politics out of it. they'd be partisan is this right now. a higher probability they can come to a deal or look like heroes. if they try to make this work there will be in very serious trouble for some time to come.
gave more than 70 speeches for romney over the last campaign year. last year both openly joked together about hitting the trail early in 2016, livin'. >> i will see you at the reunion. table for two. good diners in new hampshire or iowa? [ laughter ] >> paul, thank you four invitation for lunch in iowa and new hampshire. but i will not stand by and watch the people of south carolina ignored. >> marco rubio standing up for sowrk which votes third in the nominating process after iowa and new hampshire. the election was just a month ago. the president has not yet been reinaugurated and rubio has already actually been to iowa where he acknowledged all the talk about him running and actually joked that he will not be a candidate for coach at iowa state, harris. >> okay. i'm glad he cleared that up. carl. i understand they got very serious and talked about the future of the republic party. >> they did. and that also refers to their own political future as white house candidate. rubio he spoke at lengths about the middle class. ryan mentioned those poverty. more than a dozen times. the g.o.p.
with romney being a piece of it. >> has the private equity industry changed its position on this issue? have they accepted -- dare i say have they accepted defeat on this issue? >> i think they haven't changed their position. they still believe -- most people still believe it should be considered ordinary income, but that said, they have accepted defeat. every private equity exec i speak to says they feel at some point carry will be treated as ordinary income and not a capital gain, i'm sorry. and they've not really worked that in but accepted that's going to be a change that will have to come this year or next year. >> has there been any move of foot, and i don't know if we'll see it before the new year for a number of deals to either get done or recaps or other things where people are worried about the additional taxes that may come on dividends. >> you're starting to see that a little bit. and particularly the capital gains increase. because even if leaving carried interest aside, a lot of the investors in private equity funds, you know, no the the nonprofits, but family offices, et ceter
being revenues. when mitt romney was talking about revenues, he was talking about growing the economy and putting people back to work. we're merely talking about spreading the wealth around this country. it's been shown in history, sean, it doesn't work. >> sean: the attitude we see here is unprecedented in american history in terms of on an annual basis, trillion dollars deficits, we'll leave our kids worse off than we found the country. i call it fiscal selfishness. where is the morality of not spending more than you take in and robbing from your kids? >> that's been a case for a long time. and i fault a lot of republicans for this. certainly democrats have put these things on steroids in terms of spending. but enough republicans over decades have gone down the road of big government, big spending big entitlements, compassionate conservism. >> senator, you follow the economy every day. before the election, unemployment, 2013, is going to be over 9%. >> uh-huh. >> sean: they went back in a recession, you got other countries falling into a recession, we have anemic growth at best. is
to oppose romney. so that's like 2:1. >> you're not adding in the seiu. >> down at $14 million. i'm looking at the "wall street journa journal"'s page on super pacs. i've got the restore america's future 1rks 42, priorities usa -- >> if you add up all the super pa pacs, they barely balance out the union involvement. >> sciu was down ninth, 14.7 million. >> why are you arguing about this will? the results are out. >> are there lessons for business in the advertising campaigns by the super pacs? assuming that one side went wrong here, where did they go wrong? >> you're focusing on the super pacs and of course it's about the strategists and how they went about it. and the simple fact is the democrats understood the demographic changes whether you're talking about african-american, hispanics, single women. and understanding the changes taking place. i think the republican party is still rooted to a large september extent in the past. if you look at the nature of the people involved on either side, it was i think predictable that one set of advisers was in touch and the others weren't. >> martin
, stuart, mitt romney and the republicans beat up on president obama for the last three years for cutting medicare at $716 billion. he has already showed he is willing to take a big bite out of a major entitlement program. stuart: hold on a second. i do remember it. that is not reform. that is not reforming the structure of entitlement programs. that is the issue. >> i think the focus has been on medicare. the attention now needs to be on medicare inside the aca. there were large structural reforms in the way healthcare was playing out. in fact, last year, we had a slower rate of growth and health care spending that we have had in quite a time. whether president has proposed is part of the current negotiations is another $300 billion cut in medicare. stuart: that is a cut. you do understand, that what we really -- >> stuart, that just is not true. we have not seen them play out. certainly, we will have to be coming back every year. usually, through a committee process where people vote at the end of the day. the republicans decided to take another course around the debt ceiling. i do not
